    My wife wanted to put a BP or heart rate monitor on me tonight. I would've failed a stress test easily.

    Gritty, gutty effort by the boys. It looked like Q had a step on them for most of the night, but they made stops when needed and Stevens was awesome again. This makes last night's loss a little tougher to take, but I won't complain right now.

    Pontarelli scores two laser-precision goals this weekend, when he usually misses wide open nets. Go figure...

    They live to fight another day. I think Stevens, Champ, Novak, Coatta, & Charlie don't want their careers to end just yet.

    Vecchoine, sure, but I'm willing to bet he will be gone the day after we lose our next game.

    Wilkins would be a bad choice for captain. He's finally producing this year, but takes stupid and selfish penalties more frequently than any other player on this team.

    60 minutes of good hockey from both teams. Cool Novak goal, Stevens out of this world, Pontarelli, 3rd goal in 3 games (I believe ?)
    One penalty.

    We need another 60 minutes of good hockey and it's a 50-50 game.
    Let's go Union !!!

    See U tomorrow night!

    Great goals by Pontarelli and Novak. Nick Cruice was also outstanding on the GWG. Stevens was lights out again tonight as well. It all comes down to tomorrow night.

    Let's go U!

    Very good game by U for about 50 minutes and then Q turned it up a notch.. kudos to them, that's what good teams do. As others noted, a couple of key opportunities to ice the puck at the end might have been the difference. But was very happy with the play of the young players, particularly the D-men. They stood up Q at the blueline early and forced them to take some chances they don't normally take and then converted. Also another excellent game by Stevo. All around it was a fantastic game to watch even with the unhappy ending for U.

    Not sure what to expect tonight, as the Bobcats definitely got their wakeup call last night. Hope the boys still have something left in the tank. All I'll say is make sure you bring an orthopedic seat cushion when watching a Union - Quinnipiac playoff game .

    I have to admit, when you went up 3-1 I thought it was lights out.
    Understandable, but even though Union has found their defensive game lately, they've given up 2 & 3-goal leads a number of times this year. I wasn't counting my chickens until the clock hit all zeros.

    Agree that the open net was too tempting for them. If Union ices the puck a couple of times (maybe just once), they'd hold on.

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit-
    Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
    Life is queer with its twists and turns,

    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a fellow turns about
    When he might have won had he stuck it out.
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
    You may succeed with another blow.
    Often the goal is nearer than

    It seems to a faint and faltering man;
    Often the struggler has given up
    Whe he might have captured the victor's cup;
    And he learned too late when the night came down,
    How close he was to the golden crown.
    Success is failure turned inside out -

    The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It might be near when it seems afar;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    A very tough loss. We played 50 minutes of good hockey. Then defense for the rest of the game. Were we tired ? The problem with QU is that they have very good talented players (credit to them for that !). Those players cannot show their skill when they are being pressed and under pressure. Their skill as a team is good, not exceptional. If you keep the team under pressure for the whole game, you're fine. You stop playing, you're screwed : their top players will explode through any space they are given. And they never give up. It's a very well deserved win for them.
    As for the 6 on 5 and 6 on 4 at then end, why do we not ice the puck ? We get possession at least 3 or 4 times and we try to be cute. Who cares ? they are all over us, outplaying us and we are being totally dominated. Ice the **** puck !!!!! But no, we get cute, and they scored gorgeous goals. I hope our players can look at what QU did and learn. If you want it, it will come.
    If we can play 60 minutes tonight, I like our chances. If we can play 60 minutes.

    Tough loss last night but credit to QU. Will be in attendance tonight and stay to the end win or lose and savor every moment. The seniors may be playing their last college game (hopefully not) but I will remember their contribution to a National Championship forever. This years freshmen will go on forge their own legacy at Union and the future is bright.

    Kudos to their goalie .... and to Stevens.

    "Union lead 3-1 with 1:26 in regulation before Sam Anas scored a pair of extra-attacker goals 49 seconds apart to force overtime."

    How did we give up a 3-1 lead and two goals with 2 minutes to play to let them tie it in regulation.

    3 games, all 4-3 loses.

    Can we push it to a game 3?

    We should have been up 5-1 in the third.

    Its really too bad. Because Q has no quality wins and such a terrible non-conference record (5-6-1 and 3-5-1 against HE) they would have dropped like a lead balloon in the pairwise if we could have sweep. If we could have nailed them twice, we could have had the satisfaction of not only knocking them out of Lake Placid but also the NCAA tournament and could have ended their season completely. There is still hope but its awfully slim.

    Too many men on the ice with a minute to go? How much did they pay the refs?
